Journal Article: On The Reliability Of The 230Th-238U Dating Method Applied To Young Volcanic Rocks - Reply

Abstract
Hemond and Condomines (1985) claim that our results on zero age volcanic materials of Vesuvius and Etna are incorrect, that no disequilibrium exists in those materials and that the validity of the 230Th-238U dating method is thus confirmed. We show that other researchers obtained similar results in zero age rocks. The validity of the 230Th-238U dating method is simply ruled out by a comparison of the ages obtained by this method with those obtained on the same samples by different methods.
